Call for Papers:
Tales in the Textile: The Conservation of Flags and Other Symbolic
North American Textile Conservation Conference 2003
Albany, NY, USA
October 23-25, 2003

Textiles have served many functions, from practical to decorative to
symbolic.  Symbolic textiles can present unusual preservation
challenges in their treatment, handling, or display.  The fourth
biennial North American Textile Conservation Conference will focus
on textiles as symbols--whether it be as patriotic, cultural, or
religious emblems, or as signs of wealth or status.

Conservators, curators, conservation scientists, and others working
with these textiles are invited to submit proposals for
presentations on topics that may include: conservation treatments
(past, present and/or under development), analysis, and/or
conservation, curatorial, and management issues raised by the
preservation of such textiles. One day of this symposium will focus
on the conservation of flags.

As always for NATCC symposia, papers recognizing the collaboration
needed for textile preservation are particularly welcomed.  Papers
are also solicited for a session on new developments in the field of
textile conservation.  These papers need not be relevant to the main
conference theme.

Abstracts up to 250 words in length must be submitted by November 1,
2002. Proposals for posters should also be submitted by this date.

Speakers will be notified by December 15, 2002 if their submissions
are accepted.  Papers, which will be published by NATCC as
pre-prints and made available for general sale after the conference,
will be due by July 1, 2003.

All submissions should consist of the speaker's name, address,
e-mail address, telephone and Fax: numbers, a short one-paragraph
biography, the title of the submission and a 250 word abstract.  If
possible, submit abstracts via e-mail (with abstracts attached in
RTF format). Paper submissions will be given equal consideration.

Submit abstracts to:
